Nail polish can be full of toxic chemicals, but that doesn't mean you have to opt for colorless nails. A healthy solution to getting trendy nails? Try nail appliqués! These are nail stickers that you place over your entire nail. You then file off any excess sticker with a nail file and you're done. No dry time, no fumes, and no nail polish left on your skin. And you can get great looks that are difficult to do with regular nail polish! When you are nail, you simply remove it with nail polish remover.
I really like the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips ($7.99 at drugstores). They have some really nice styles ranging from animal print to glitter to plain colors, and they last up to 10 days.
I tried the Sally Hansen stickers in their "Wishnets" pattern. What do you think?
